Description

Great Southern Cabernet Sauvignon & Malbec

Hand-picked from the pure gravelly soils of our north-facing vineyard, the 2021 Reserve is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Malbec.

Floral spice, with deliciously intense dark fruit aromas are balanced by a bright cool-climate palate of cassis, mulberry and plum with lingering, velvety tannins.

Selected from the very best barriques from the exceptional 2021 vintage, this reserve was matured for 10 months in premium French oak barriques under the careful guidance of winemakers Liam Carmody and Guy Lyons.

This wine will continue to improve and impress over the next 10 – 15 years.

ONLY 1300 Bottles produced.
